How will the Ala tragedy affect Taichung Nightlife?

It will make things worse. There will be fewer places and people will go out less often.

It will actually make things better. They will build a bigger and better club in its place.

Most of these bars were small local pubs where people had built their business over years. The whole bar business in Taichung has been hurting for the two years we have been in this recession, and so, most of the small owners have already used up what savings they had. The Refuge, being out in the countryside has escaped scrutiny as have any place not in the city proper. The Refuge, emerge in Donghai, and Sound on Henan road are the only places to see bands at this time as 89l has been closed due to unapproved changes made to the building after construction.

The refuge is very safe from fire. It is an outside club.

The Refuge is not an 'outside' club. It is no more or less safe than the other places were. Also, Sound and Emerge are both now closed also. So NO LIVE MUSIC IN TAICHUNG!

The refuge is not technically in Taichung.

For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way. Something to be got through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life -- FR ALFRED D'SOUZA
